Reading has a high status within the academy and we seek to create fluent, life-long readers who love and value books. We have a wide range of high quality reading materials to support development and children read in school every day, individually, in small groups and as a class. Where there is extra practice children make significant progress and we encourage parents to read with their children on a daily basis.

We teach our children to read using the lively, well structured Read Write Inc phonics programme. For more information on how to help your child with their Phonics please follow the link, Read Write Inc.

When our children become more confident readers they start to use Accelerated Reader. This quizzes the children on the books they have read, to prove that they have understood the text. They are then able to move on to more challenging books or choose books which are more suited to their current level.
